Have you heard the latest Kardashian news? Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and half-sister Kylie Jenner are all reportedly pregnant. And the really wild thing is, people think Kim Kardashian confirmed all three pregnancies almost a month ago on social media, but at the time fans just didn't get the hint.
If you haven't been keeping up with the Kardashians, you may have missed the news that Kim, Khloe, and Kylie are supposedly all pregnant at the same time. The news comes just as the show Keeping Up With the Kardashians will celebrate its 10th anniversary, which is either incredibly lucky or incredibly calculated.
Kim confirmed her own baby news in an "extended supertease" for the next season of the show, released Thursday, according to ET Online. Back in June, she and her husband rapper Kanye West were rumored to have hired a surrogate to have a third child, according to the BBC. This was reportedly because of serious health complications with Kim's previous two pregnancies.
As for Kylie and Khloe, news of their pregnancies is very recent. Last week, sources claimed that Kylie is pregnant and due in February, and on Tuesday, People reported that Khloé Kardashian and her NBA boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, are expecting a baby as well. Neither Khloe nor Kylie's reps have responded to Romper's requests for comment.
But an Instagram post that Kim made on Sept. 3 may have actually hinted at the baby news for all three of the sisters weeks ago, according to Bustle writer Dana Getz. In the image, posted to her account, Kim, Khloe, and Kylie are all hanging out by a pool, and the photo is captioned, "The 3 of us..."
Now, that might not mean anything. It could have just been a quick and simple sentence written on Kim's part, just to have something to put as a caption before posting the picture of the women.
But if Kylie is five months pregnant, then she probably knew about the pregnancy back when Kim made that post. Sources like Mirror Online claimed that she's that far along, but as the pregnancy hasn't even been officially confirmed, we have no way of knowing if that's true.
Another insider close to the family reportedly told People that Kylie and Khloe are due around the same time. If they are both pregnant, and the info about their due dates is true, then again, they were likely aware of that fact when Kim made the Instagram post. So she might have been dropping a hint and being coy with fans, who were none the wiser.
The fact that the other two pregnancies haven't been confirmed may seem suspicious, but that's actually pretty typical for the Kardashian family. "Whenever they’re surrounded by particularly juicy rumors," Vox reported, "they wait out the rumors out until they can address them on their TV show."
But that doesn't mean that Kim can't have a little fun with social media hints if she wants to — especially ones that are as vague as the caption some fans are now reading a lot into.
The season premiere of the show isn't until Sunday, so if Kim did know that all three of the sisters were pregnant a month ago, she might not have wanted to totally spill the beans too soon. Timing is everything in entertainment news, after all. Everything moves so quickly that "breaking news" becomes "old news" really fast. And that's certainly not what the Kardashians want when they're trying to drum up interest for a new season and a 10-year anniversary milestone.
But what could one Instagram post hurt, especially if it really didn't reveal anything at all? If all three sisters are pregnant, and if the caption is related to that, then it's like an inside joke for them to enjoy, with no real threat that it could derail carefully planned buzz right before the premiere. If anything, this fuels the rumors even more.
Whatever the caption means, one thing is for sure — this is one reality TV family that knows how to keep people talking.
